Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

Laptop keyboard is not working correctly

When I use the "num lock" feature, the right half portion of the keyboard becomes numbers, too. The keyboard on this laptop is like the regular keyboard with separate number keyboard. My computer guy fixed this problem once before, but didn't know how he did it, said he was messing around with the buttons and got lucky.
Please help, there is no point of having separate num key and can't use it.
Thank you,
Wyndi Pham

It does sound like your computer is confused as to what type of keyboard it has. You can try updating the BIOS on the laptop - based on the suggestion in this HP help document:

Let me know if this helps or not.

Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop

My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]


Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

That means you have the Num Lk (Number Lock)key on. And when you Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard plus the keys you specified above the number appears instead of the letter.

Just hit your Num Lk key at the top of the keyboard to turn it off.

Hi.

You have your Num Lock on. Look for the Num Lock key on the top right of the keyboard and press it. That will remove the Number Lock and the letters will type as normal.

You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

Keyboard


The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.
